3.55/5  rDev +2.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: This one has a clear bright golden body with a tall loose head on top. This head settles down quickly leaving just a few bubbles at the surface and around the edge of the glass.

Smell: There is not much going on here. The aroma is very light. Only a slight citrusy hop presence is noted.

Taste / Palate: The flavor profile is very clean and light. There is a very modest and refreshing cracker like malty base with mild lemony hop bitterness. The finish is quick and fairly dry.

Pours a clear golden yellow color with a rough white head that fades quickly leaving little chunks of lacing.

Smells of slight fruity and grassy notes.

Tastes of the grainy sweetness mostly. Fairly light with some bread and a bit of grape like notes. Hops are hidden a little, but do come through as it warms adding a grassy and floral touch.

Mouthfeel is light with a crisp amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is a nice refreshing beer and it is quite enjoyable.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Presentation: 12 oz short bottle, bright colored label with a hoodoo rock formation. Nice change from some of the older Uinta designs. Bottled on date marked, but I don't see an ABV.

Appearance: Clear golden, thick head with good retention and lacing.

Smell: Bready malt and just a bit of citrus, no noticeable hops.

Taste: Smooth mouthfeel and medium carbonation levels. Quite a bit of citrus in the taste, with a bready malt flavor dominating.

Overall impression: Decent light offering, good flavor but nothing interesting enough to make me want to come back for more.

6 pack from Smith's in Vernal for $9.99. Into a Boulevard Pint.

A: Gold in color with a finger's worth of stark white head that quickly fades to a thin cap. Excellent clarity, and quite a few bubbles moving up through this.

S: Not much, lightly grainy with a slightly soapy hop profile. Smells really light and crisp.

T: Follows the nose, light and grainy with a bit of sweetness. A slight amount of bitterness evens things out on the finish. Nice spicy hop profile. Pretty enjoyable stuff.

M: Light, crisp carbonation, and really dry. Very enjoyable.

O: Not too shabby, a nice session beer that I am glad to be able to get regularly, especially once summer hits.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Poured with just under a finger of head and settled slightly but was present throughout. Light random lacing. Orange/golden color. Cloudy body with average active carbonation while drinking.

Smell: Cream, bananas, butter, yeast, bread, and sweet dough. The very bright creamy texture jumps right out of the glass. Solid yeast and malt backbone. Light hop presence. This aroma is simple, to the point, and delicious.

Taste: Buttery front hits the palate first. A solid malt and yeast body keep coming in waves. Little hop presence is found. The finish is a refreshing sweetness that is easy on the palate.

Mouthfeel: Easy, refreshing, sessionable, and drinkable.

Overall: A very enjoyable Kolsch. Uinta beers are always very solid and drinkable. This beer packs a pretty impressive punch for being 4% abv. Definitely recommended.
